And I know what you're sayiing too.... but... it's real convenient to look at a 1" gird target @ 400 yds and instantly know 3.6 right and 5.2 low (give or take a tenth) and go... click, click, click, click and click, click, click, click click..

There are advantages to both systems, I just like MOA, and am in agreemant to match the reticle with the turret.

Re: MOA reticles, anyone use them?

There are a few threads on this. Do a search on NPR1 and/or NPR2 and you'll find some.

I like the NPR2 because it's not as busy as the NPR1.

I like the NPR2 that I use for Elk hunting.
Its pretty easy to count by two!
Also depending on your bullet the NPR2 has some great hold points.

Re: MOA reticles, anyone use them?

I have been saving to buy a Nightforce 5.5-22x50 with the NPR1 reticle.

One reason I like this scope/reticle is when spotting you are able to give MOA correctioins very quickly to the shooter who can then adjust with clicks, adjust the lead or hold over (and some time hold under) as needed.

I think it speeds up the process and is simpler for me than other methods.

Re: MOA reticles, anyone use them?

I have the NP-R1 and love it. I carry a Range card in my pocket, one which I first printed from ballistics software and then went to the range and confirmed and adjusted for actual results. If I have the time I dial up or if I am in a hurry I count up the dashes.

Re: MOA reticles, anyone use them?

I have a quick question. All my scopes have fixed reticles. I can zoom in, but the reticles stay the same. I've been reading about the NP-R2 and it says the reticles change with the magnification. For some reason, I can't get me head around how it works. Is the simple answer: The reticle changes in size to maintain each line as 1 or 2MOA, no matter the distance?

Also, does NP-R1 do the same thing?
